'Lake Bodom': Film Review | London Film Festival

An infamous real-life unsolved murder case inspired Finnish director Taneli Mustonen’s teens-in-peril thriller, which pays homage to some classic slasher movies.
Taking a real multiple homicide case as its inspiration, Lake Bodom is a superior Finnish slasher movie with enough production gloss and narrative ingenuity to secure a U.K. premiere at the London Film Festival last week. In June 1960, three teenagers were murdered and another left badly injured by an unknown assailant while camping beside a remote forest lake west of Helsinki. These notorious events remain newsworthy in Finland, where various suspects have come under police scrutiny over the decades, including an alleged KGB agent and the sole surviving victim of the attack. More than half a century later, the case remains unsolved.

Writer-director Taneli Mustonen, best known domestically for light comedies, shifts confidently into bloodthirsty thriller mode with Lake Bodom. Paying homage to some 1980s slasher classics, but not too weighted down by horror conventions, this twist-heavy exercise in shock and gore is assured plenty of further play at genre-friendly festivals, beginning with Monsters of Film in Stockholm later this week. Outside the fest circuit, it should find a modest readymade audience on both big and small screens.

In present-day Finland, tattoo-covered teenage bad-boy Elias (Mikael Gabriel) and his geeky buddy Atte (Santeri Helinheimo Mantyla) set off on a road trip to the Bodom murder site, where they plan to re-enact the massacre as a tasteless photo project. They persuade two female schoolmates to join them, religiously repressed wallflower Ida (Nelly Hirst-Gee) and her more spirited best friend Nora (Mimosa Willamo), but without explaining their motives. As night falls over their remote campfire gathering, tensions between the quartet take a turn from flirtatious to angry to vengeful. And then the slaughter begins.

So far, this is a fairly rote slasher set-up. But Lake Bodom signals its elevated artistic aspirations early on with its layered characters, subtle verbal clues and Hitchcock-style red herrings. Before dawn breaks, the screenplay has some jarring reverses and revelations in store, especially when a flashback brings the timely themes of body-shaming and bullying on social media into play, shaking up the power dynamic between the four protagonists. More than one secret plan comes to light, more than one treacherous deception and more than one killer. Predators become prey as the lake’s grisly history seems poised to repeat itself.

Lake Bodom is peppered with visual quotes and fan-friendly homages to vintage teens-in-peril movies like Carrie, Friday the 13th, Wolf Creek and more. But Mustonen always remembers his obligation to thrill and disturb, never surrendering to self-referential genre spoof in the Scream vein. There is certainly nothing tongue-in-cheek about an adrenaline-pumped finale that includes a bone-crunching showdown between two psycho-killers, a white-knuckle car chase and a creepy jump-cut close-up montage of visceral horror.

More guilty pleasure than game-changing reboot, Lake Bodom is not a subversive reinvention of slasher-movie rules, but at least it gives the formula a punchy and inventive workout. Two strong narrative twists within a crisp 90 minutes is pretty good going, even if the final crescendo of carnage lacks the last-minute sting some may be expecting. The overall tech package is a cut above most genre efforts, especially Daniel Lindholm’s cinematography, which finds room for painterly vistas of the mist-shrouded lake and striking high-altitude aerial shots of blazing autumnal forests. Panu Aaltio’s percussive, slithering, eruptive score also is a fitting complement to the sense-jarring events onscreen.

2016 Hollywood Movies Entertainment Reviews And News:

'Ouija: Origin of Evil': Film Review

Courtesy of Universal Pictures
Old-fashioned storytelling provides some satisfying scares.  TWITTER
A Ouija board serves as a portal to the spirit world in this prequel to the 2014 horror hit.
A hauntingly old-fashioned atmosphere infuses Ouija: Origin of Evil, a superior prequel to the 2014 horror film which used the parlor board game as its inspiration. Set nearly 50 years earlier, with its visual style evocatively rendering its period setting, the film delivers a satisfying quotient of scares before lapsing into genre clich├ęs in its final act.

Taking place in 1967, the story concerns the Zander family, including widowed mother Alice (Elizabeth Reaser); teen daughter Paulina, known as Lina (Annalise Basso); and 9-year-old Doris (Lulu Wilson).

Alice runs a fake medium business out of her home, using her daughters as confederates to help fool her bereaved clients with illusions simulating contact from the dead. The financially struggling single mother doesn't think of herself as conning her clients, but rather comforting them in their time of need.

'Ouija': Film Review
One day Alice comes home bearing "a new prop for work" in the form of a Ouija board. That Alice isn't entirely cynical about her vocation is made clear when she makes a half-hearted attempt to contact her late husband using the board, with disappointing results.

But the Ouija board soon proves itself a genuine conduit to the spirit world, with little Doris becoming possessed by an entity that clearly has malevolent intentions. With the little girl writing copiously in Polish and undergoing disturbing physical transformations, the situation attracts the concern of Father Tom (Henry Thomas), the principal of her Catholic school. He comes to the Zander home to investigate, and when he stands outside the house, wearing a hat and clutching a small bag, his silhouette provides a sly visual allusion to The Exorcist.

Director/screenwriter Flanagan (Oculus, Hush) slowly ratchets up the tension, foregoing a heavy reliance on cheap jump scares (not that there aren't a few). Infused with psychological complexity and nuanced characterizations, Ouija: Origin of Evil falters only in the final section, featuring a demon looking like a renegade member of Blue Man Group and a backstory involving the Holocaust that feels wholly unearned.

Both Reaser and Thomas provide unexpected depths to what could have been schematic roles, and the younger performers are even better. Basso vividly conveys her character's teenage angst, and Wilson is particularly impressive as the possessed little girl who becomes increasingly frightening. When the latter delivers a chillingly detailed description of what it feels like to be strangled to death, it makes you hope that the production staff included an on-set psychological counselor.

The visually sumptuous film, featuring Michael Fimognari's autumnal cinematography and Patricio M. Farrell's perfectly vintage-looking sets and costumes, actually appears to date from the period in which it's set. The clever credit sequences, employing the old Universal logo and inspired by Ouija board graphics, are another plus.

The film certainly works as a stand-alone story, but fans of the 2014 predecessor should stick around through the end credits, when the narrative connection between the two is revealed in a short sequence featuring veteran horror film actress Lin Shaye.
